Names Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capricolum ATCC 27343
Accession numbers NC_007633
Background Mycoplasma capricolum is primarily a pathogen of goats but it has also been found in sheep and cows. In goats, M.capricolum is highly destructive, causing important mortality and morbidity. Severe arthritis (polyarthritis) is the primary clinical manifestation. Parenteral or oral administration of M.capricolum results in acute conditions. The organism progresses in the form of septicemia, with severe involvement of the joints leading to permanent lameness.
